past month or so sometimes get a prompt come up saying " High usage by firefox" . What is that about?


That is a feature of the latest Norton product and is nothing to worry about.

and am I correct in that you are saying that the bit torrent is not to use as its the same as what the ares and limewire sites were doing?

also, just viewing porn shouldnt open up a virus am I correct? I go to some sites from time to time but do not download anything. I havent went to any since cleaning my system recently though. I want to make sure I learn alot about the stuff to just be safe about before I take a chance.

Hi nyg052003,

I am saying there is no safe way of downloading free music.

also, just viewing porn shouldnt open up a virus am I correct?


It shouldn't install a virus, but porn sites are known to exploit browser vulnerabilities and to use social engineering to trick the user into installing malware.
